Description

Platinum will never tarnish. Neither will the allure of this exclusive coin. It's our first platinum coin to be selectively enamelled and features leaves from the silver maple. This fast-growing tree was a favourite among settlers seeking a steady supply of wood. Some even claimed its sap was the sweetest, but its yield too small to be viable. The silver maple's leaves are beyond compare. Their distinct contours stunning in translucent red enamel.

Canadian artist Celia Godkin has captured the distinctive beauty of the silver maple leaf, the deep indentations between its lobes, irregular teeth and defined points. Three leaves hang from the sprig in the background, each becoming smaller to enhance the sense of perspective. The large leaf in the foreground hangs upside-down with its central lobe pointed towards the bottom of the field. The leaf's delicate veining is clearly visible through the translucent red enamel that brings a dynamic touch of autumnal colour to the design.

A must-have acquisition for collectors of all kinds. This coin will appeal to anyone who appreciates art and innovation, and the timeless allure of rare precious metals. Gardeners and nature lovers, particularly those with a penchant for all things Canadian, will appreciate the design's uplifting tribute to their national tree.
